Last week during the morning show Chris and I discussed the Potato Hotel in Idaho, which got me wondering what other sort of interesting Airbnb rentals I could find. Turns out there are quite a few unique finds right here in the midwest. I've compiled some of my favorites just for you.

Pirate Ship Adventure Cabin

Okay, I can't get over how cool this one is. Have you ever had the urge to pretend to be a pirate for the evening? If so, I've found the PERFECT place for you. Check out this Pirate Ship Cabin located in Lyndon Station, WI, near the Dells. It goes for $173 a night and can sleep 6 guests. It even has a fun play area for the kiddos. The only downside I can see is that the bathhouse is a bit of a walk from the cabin, but I personally wouldn't mind that for a night or two.

Have you ever thought about staying in a grain bin? I know I sure haven't, but I've got to say, I'm pretty impressed by this cute rental located in Fayette, IA. You can book it for $130 a night and it comes equipped with two full-size beds, a comfy living space, bathroom with 3'x5' shower, and a kitchenette.

This unique manor, located in Saint Paul, Minnesota, was built in 1883 and was voted the most mysterious house in Saint Paul by the Pioneer Press. Just based off the pictures we can see why! The host offers a private room for $105 a night. The room has an attached master bath and in-suite laundry. There is a queen-sized bed, along with an airbed and extra linens for an additional 2 people. Be aware, the friendly pet Doberman, Scorch, may introduce himself to you! Also be sure to check out the large courtyard with a fire pit and picnic area! Looking for a little mystery? Look no further.
